I had a realy big problem! I had Win instaled on C: and then I install SuSe 9.1 on D:! SuSe worked great, but there were no way ti boot windows, that linux multy-boot don't work with win! I solve it by deleting all partitions on HDD, but... Is there a way to have them boot instaled?
Each OS needs it's own partition.
just wanna ask a quick question here, now my current harddrive is partitioned to 3. c drive is ntfs with my winxp. d drive is ntfs with my software & documents on it. and about 8gb free space. but when ever i install linux on it, it wont boot. it's just say grub at the boot screen and stay like that. why is it so?
you can try to create the boot at linux system.
If you have Grub or Lilo, it doesn't matter.
You can try and create a boot option for windows.
as wistom said here.
anyway, everything is explained in previous posts already.
my own opinion, after you'll experience linux for like a year or so, you'll get tired.
That's what happened to me.
But I ran linux 100% without windows.
Get a boot floppy and then reboot your PC with it .
It may help you
